OC Raw - Rabbit & Produce
OC Raw Rabbit is sourced from San Diego. This Formula is a fantastic option for
dogs who have severe allergies to more common proteins. All produce and proteins
are Human Grade. Our food does not contain any chemicals, enhancers,
preservatives, remnants, processed meals, or renderings. OC Raw does not use
denatured meat. OC Raw does not source any of meat or produce from China or
Mexico. EVERYTHING used is USA grown (except the lamb which sometimes comes
from New Zealand).
Sourced from local organic ranchers. OC Raw rabbit is lean and is great for a
weight control diet. Also, dogs with allergies do well on this formula.
Rabbit Meat: Is classified as poultry. Like chicken or turkey but is extremely lean with more protein
and significantly less fat. But unlike the common proteins of chicken and turkey dogs and cats who
are allergic to poultry can usually digest rabbit without allergy symptoms. Other benefits of rabbit
meat include the following: there is no cholesterol found in rabbit meat making it a fantastic option
for dogs who have a history of cardiac disease. Rabbit meat contains fewer calories when comparing
ounce per ounce of chicken, turkey, beef, and lamb making it a fantastic option for dogs needing to
lose a few pounds without significantly cutting the portion size.
Carrots: Carrots are good source of Thiamine, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Manganese, and a very
good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium. Carrots are an excellent
source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotene's.
Carrots' antioxidant compounds help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also
promote good vision, especially night vision.
Apples: Apples are a great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Dietary Fiber. Apples have been
shown to help reduce blood cholesterol, improve bowel function, reduce risk of stroke, promote
healthy lung functions due to the fiber and phytonutrients present in the apples.
Green Beans: Green Beans are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C. These are both
important for maintaining optimum health, and are also valuable antioxidants. Green beans offer
additional antioxidants in the forms of manganese and a variety of cartenoids and flavonoids. All of
these in tandem make green beans an antioxidant powerhouse, which is crucial in preventing various
cancers and heart diseases. Antioxidants perform this function by seeking out and neutralizing free
radicals that damage cells. These damaged cells, in turn, damage other cells in their vicinity, creating
a chain reaction that negatively affects your health.
Beyond their antioxidant benefits, the high levels of calcium, vitamin K, magnesium, phosphorous and
silicon all support stronger, healthier bones. Evidence is also beginning to emerge showing that
green beans has anti-inflammation benefits, and may also prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes with
the ability to aid in the process of sugar in the body and stabilize insulin levels. And, to boot, green
beans pack in a bunch of dietary fiber into a few calories, leaving your digestive track clean and
Broccoli: A very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, C, K, B6, Folate, Potassium and
Manganese. Also a good source of added protein, Vitamin E, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid,
Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, and Phosphorous and Selenium. This has been shown to fend off cancer,
osteoporosis, birth defects, and heart disease. It can also boost your immunity.
Spinach: Contains Niacin and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A,
Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium,
Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.
Acorn Squash: Acorn Squash is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Folate and
Magnesium, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Thiamine, Potassium and Manganese. Acorn
squash have been found to have anti-cancer type effects. specifically the ability to prevent cell
mutations (cancer-like changes).
Beets: Beets are a good source of Vitamin C, Iron and Magnesium, and a very good source of
Dietary Fiber, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. Beets are of great therapeutic value. They have
properties to clean the kidneys and gall bladder.
Cod Liver Oil: This food is very low in Sodium. It is also a very good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin
D. It also provides your dog with omega-3 fatty acids. These are essential for the healthy function of
the brain, the heart, the joints, the digestive system and many other systems of the body. Another
benefit of cod liver oil is related to its vitamin E content, which helps the body process the fatty acids,
is an essential antioxidant and promotes the health of the skin and coat.
Parsley: Parsley is a good source of Protein, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamine, Riboflavin,
Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber,
Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and
Manganese. Parsley's volatile oils-particularly myristicin-have been shown to inhibit tumor formation
in animal studies, and particularly, tumor formation in the lungs. Folic acid is also a critical nutrient for
proper cell division and is therefore vitally important for cancer-prevention in two areas of the body
that contain rapidly dividing cells.
Blueberries: This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source
of Dietary Fiber, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Manganese. Blueberries are not
only a powerful antioxidant but also have been proved to preserve vision.
Cranberries: Have several health benefits to maintain urinary tract health they contain a compound
that prevents microorganisms from adhering to cells of the urinary tract. They have what researchers
call "anti-adhesion" properties that can help reduce the risk of urinary tract infections. The same
compound aids in the Dental Health using the same "anti-adhesion" property prevents bacteria from
forming in the mouth. They might reduce the formation of harmful plaque that leads to gum disease.
Cranberries aid in Heart Health by reducing bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and raise levels of good
(HDL) cholesterol in the blood. They contain Anti Cancer Antioxidants that have been found to inhibit
the formation of cancer cells. As well as anti-ulcer benefits from the tannins found in cranberries
which can prevent the adhesion of ulcer causing bacteria in the stomach?
Olive Oil: Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fat and antioxidants like chlorophyll, carotenoids and
vitamin E scientists have identified a compound in olive oil called oleuropein which prevents the LDL
cholesterol from oxidizing. It is the oxidized cholesterol that sticks to the walls of the arteries and
forms plaque. A study published in the January 2005 issue of Annals of Oncology has identified oleic
acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid found in olive oil, as having the ability to reduce the affect of an
oncogene (a gene that will turn a host cell into a cancer cell). This particular oncogene is associated
with the rapid growth of breast cancer tumors. The conclusion of the researchers was that oleic acid
when combined with drug therapy encouraged the self-destruction of aggressive,
treatment-resistant cancer cells thus destroying the cancer. Olive oil has been positively indicated in
studies on prostate and endometrial cancers as well.
Unlike other fats, which are associated with a higher risk of colon cancer, olive oil helps protect the
cells of the colon from carcinogens. A study published in the November 2003 issue of Food Chemistry
Toxicology suggests that the antioxidants in olive oil reduce the amount of carcinogens formed when
meat is cooked. Olive oil is also linked to lower triglyceride levels.
Calcium Carbonate: Calcium Carbonate is the true complete food grade form of solid calcium. The
AAFCO requires that any dog or cat food be at minimum equal in calcium and phosphorus. Bone is
not a naturally one to one ratio. This is why we add calcium carbonate to increase the calcium ratios
in the food.
